I'm just going with the worst possible scenario. If I split the case, I'm committed. If the case doesn't warp then I'll be lucky. I won't know the condition of the bottom end until I split the case. I may get by with just a top end of the 2.7. New pistons/cylinder kit and a valve job and slap the thing together.

If I split the case and it does need a align bore and the bearings are no longer available then what do I do? Machine the case faces and rebore to the original bearings?

I just want a daily driver. I plan on taking the car on road trips to Vermont, California and Washington so I don't need a hot rod engine. A stock engine is preferable.
